Crystal Blast Stratios

What a pretty ship.


My tastes have always been simple. I like the color blue. This would be perfect in blue and white instead of blue and black but it is near perfect and so sweetly, blue.

How does one fit a ship? One of the things I shed early in my Eve career was fitting my own ships. I'm not a min/max type of person and I dove into a PvP environment where my actions effected others. That gave me a responsibility to fit the 'best' way. In the end, I never learned how to fit ships in Eve on a deep, personal level. I am not interested in fitting tools or maximum stats. They are important in the game of Eve but not important to me.

But the habits run super deep. Looking at ship fitting makes me twitch. Not because I cannot put a ship together but because what I am inclined to do probably won't be the right thing and way. Then the memory of mockery and being paraded before others and mocked for ignorance tickles at me. It is my constant love hate with Eve. I enjoy the game but I dislike some social things about the game for the same reason I dislike sports. I'm not competitive and that urge to insult and belittle people for 'winning' is not something that I possess. It is not that I mind loss it is that being mocked saddens me. Not because I failed but because it is such an unpleasant aspect of human nature. But sometimes one has to learn to close their eyes and continue on. Similar to how I learned not to google myself to see what people were saying during the CSM.

I've always been that person that used the gear that they liked not because it was best. Rarely do I end a game with tiered gear with the best. I am heavily effected by the design. Similar to how ugly my Legion always was. Bafflingly ugly.

I was told they redid some of the looks. 

But, a Sttratios I shall get and some scanning implants. And then I shall fly into the darkness to find some more skillbooks. I think I need to learn some ice harvesting skills and get a little ice ship for that. Maybe its finally time to play in wormholes for me.

  1. So glad to see you back to posting and playing. Your blog is always one of my daily stops. GL with your future endeavors in game - I am coming back from "winning" Eve recently as well. I've decided to seed a market in an underdeveloped part of New Eden. Guess who is the inspiration for that? o7

Taboo Questions

Let us talk contentious things. What about high sec? When will CCP pay attention to high sec and those that cannot spend their time in dangerous space?  This is somewhat how the day started, sparked by a question from an anonymous poster. Speaking about high sec, in general, is one of the hardest things to do. The amount of emotion wrapped around the topic is staggering. There are people who want to stay in high sec and nothing will make them leave. There are people who want no one to stay in high sec and wish to cripple everything about it. There are people in between, but the two extremes are large and emotional in discussion. My belief is simple. If a player wishes to live in high sec, I do not believe that anything will make them leave that is not their own curiosity. I do not believe that we can beat people out of high sec or destroy it until they go to other areas of space. Sometimes, I think we forget that every player has the option to not log back in. We want them to log

Conflicted

Halycon said it quite well in a comment he left about the skill point trading proposal for skill point changes. He is conflicted in many different ways. So am I. Somedays, I don't want to be open minded. I do not want to see other points of view. I want to not like things and not feel good about them and it be okay. That is something that is denied me for now. I've stated my opinion about the first round of proposals to trade skills. I don't like them. That isn't good enough. I have to answer why. Others do not like it as well. I cannot escape over to their side and be unhappy with them. I am dragged away and challenged about my distaste.  Some of the people I like most think the change is good. Other's think it has little meaning. They want to know why I don't like it. When this was proposed at the CSM summit, I swiveled my chair and asked if they realized that they were undoing the basic structure that characters and game progression worked under. They said th

Maybe one day!

It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio
